image for West Virginia Votes To Change The 9-1-1 Emergency Number
West Virginia cell phone users will no longer have to dial 9-1-1- for emergencies.

CHARLESTON, West Virginia - State Senator Marlene W. Pillwater [D-Philippi] has just announced that the state senate has passed a bill which will change the 9-1-1- emergency number.

Senator Pillwater said that after a heated debate on the senate floor the measure was passed by a vote of 19 to 15.

She pointed out that she was the author of the bill which she says makes perfect sense.

The new bill known as The West Virginia Emergency Number Bill will go into effect on March 1, 2014, at 12:02 a.m.

The senator noted that the new emergency number will now be 9-1. She said that by eliminating one of the digits it will help for the callers of the emergency number to get through 33 percent faster.

She added that the two digit number will also be much easier to remember.

SIDENOTE: Senator Pillwater spoke with Durango Tucker of National Focus Magazine and she told him that she is certain that other states will take the Mountain State's lead and pass similar bills.
